It's not what you were saying, because wikipedia is using a different definition of trapezoid that doesn't require that there is only one pair of parallel sides.

Yeah wikipedia uses this definition: In Euclidean geometry, a convex quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides is referred to as a trapezoid
